Horton Plaza is a nice place to take people who haven't been to san diego and want to do a little shopping.
While a mall seems like an odd tourist attraction, this is no ordinary mall and is one of the most identifiable landmarks of people who have visited me.
Located in the heart of San diego, it also is a great place to keep your car parked and explore nearby restaurants. almost everything is within walking distance of Horton. Parking is free for the first three hours as long as you get your ticket validated. Before 10pm, you can stamp it yourself at Sam goodys. After ten, you can buy a stick of gum at the loog's drugstore.
The mall is uniqely designed with bright colors, lots of stores, and lots of stories tall. The place is like a maze. You might see the store you want to go to in the distance, but you really have no idea how to get there!
A lot of the stores are uncommon, ones you don't see in other malls.
Great place to visit and shop to your heart's content.
